Chriss Street for Breitbart reports:
Former California State Senator and top gun control advocate Leland Yee pleaded guilty Wednesday to public corruption. Still facing allegations of weapons trafficking, money laundering, murder-for-hire, and drug distribution, Yee’s plea deal seems to indicate that he is ready to “rat out” an even wider group of Bay Area and Sacramento conspirators.
…Yee and Keith Jackson pled guilty to conspiracy for offering political favors in exchange for contributions to Yee’s 2014 campaign for Secretary of State, and for helping pay off debt still owed from his unsuccessful 2010 run for San Francisco mayor. The felony charge carried a maximum prison term of 20 years and financial penalties, as well as possible restitution and forfeiture. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 21.
…Yee, who was named to the “Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll” by the Brady Campaign gun control advocates, is facing other indictments detailed in a stunning 88-page criminal complaint. Yee is alleged to be involved in buying automatic weapons and shoulder-launched missiles from the Moro Islamic Liberation Front terrorists in the southern Philippines, and attempting to re-sell the weapons to an undercover FBI agent.
